Chelsie Brush

EAST LIVERPOOL — Chelsie Brush, a computer technology major at Kent State-East Liverpool, was one of 12 female students from across the KSU campus system to be selected to the Women’s Center SAGE Project, Class of 2018.

The SAGE Project recognizes female students at KSU who demonstrate innovation, creativity, risk-taking and leadership skills in their academic and personal lives.

Brush graduates in May with an associate degree in computer technology, with a concentration in networking. She will continue her studies to earn a bachelor’s degree in computer technology, with a minor in computer forensics and security.

The SAGE Project gets its name from the significance of sage, used in the Native American culture for healing, bringing one’s life into balance, and cleansing the body and mind of negativity. The SAGE project uses the power of storytelling to highlight students who overcome adversity to shape their lives and their Kent State experiences.

Brush’s story is on display in Purinton Hall, just outside of the library.

A 2013 graduate of Wellsville High School, she is the daughter of Randall and Brenda Brush and the youngest of six children.

As a student at KSU-East Liverpool, Brush has worked as a student employee in the IT Department since 2014, and is also working in the campus library. She twice received the Opportunity Scholarship and has been on the Dean’s List for several semesters.
